Raspberry summer & autumn planting advice


Ive put in a bed(18 canes) of glen moy and glen ample raspberries.

I also have 10 autumn bliss canes.

how far apart should I plant the autumn canes to avoid getting the suckers confused?

I don't want autumn canes in my with my summer as I wonyt know what to prune when!

Also anyone any idea how far suckers spread with raspberries? mine are a couple of feet from a raised bed.

    My autumn raspberries (Polka - absolutely wonderful fruit) would spread right across the garden if I let them.  I spend the summer chopping off runners with a spade when they spread out of their allotted area into the rest of the fruit and veg patch.  I suggest putting in some sort of membrane/barrier to try to contain them if you want to keep them separate.
